How adventurous are you with characters?

    Do you find you use the same characters every game like I usually do, or do you try out different combinations? I usually start MM8 with a female dark elf and pick up Devlin Arcanus and Elspeth Lamentia at the adventurers inn. Then I get Fredrick Talimere and finally Simon Templar. Once I have started building up these characters, I hate to lose them so they stay with me throughout the game except when I need to use the two specific quest characters.

    . . . I normally start with either a cleric or a necromancer. I pick up the NPCs available in Dagger Wound Islands to fill out the rest of my party temporarily, and head for the mainland. Depending on whether I started with a necroamncer or a cleric, I swap out Frederic Talimere or Devlin Arcanus for Ithilgore, and Simon Templar for Cauri when I find her. That's my stadard party.

    I did play one game where I deliberately set out to get the top level hirelings as soon as I could, but I found it did not give me an enjoyable game. First, I missed out on the thrill of developing my own team of characters, seeing them promoted, and watching their abilities grow. Second, the party rapidly became so powerful that the game became boring. I do know that I never finished the game, although I cannot remember what stage it was at when I abandoned it.

    ready made characters usually come with a bunch of skills, some of which are useless to me. I have never used ID Monster for example. I realise it may be useful at master and granmdmaster levels in finding a monsters weaknesses but I think there are plenty of far more useful skills for a character to spend time and skill points on.

    Two other skill I have never used are Diplomacy and Bodybuilding. I do use Meditation for my Archer, but only occasionally.
